Holistic Body Training aka Bounce and Shake
Strength-, flexibility-, coordination- and cardio-vascular training based on approved body and training knowledges, elements of Yoga, Qi Gong, Nei Gong and Contemporary Dance focussing the fascial system, getting our grooves on fed by exquisite music.
Fascia loves diversity. It vitalizes when it is squeezed, shoved, softened up or stroked. It also becomes more adoptable and juicy when one is bouncing, shaking or moving into multiple directions. Maybe this is one reason why it is the favoured tissue in sports science and research on physical training in the last ten or fifteen years. However, recent discoveries in fascial science are long applied in ancient movement practices such as some forms of Yoga and Qi Gong as well as in Tuina (a Chinese manual type of body therapy). It is astonishing as well that fascial chains are often postulated along meridians (referring to meridians as used in TCM). And yet knowledge about fascia and its functions was accessible in the western world, see for example the work of the anatomist Jean Marc Bourgery (19th century) or the pioneering work of the biochemist Ida Rolf (USA 20th century).
Along these lines in this class we will draw on central aspects of diverse movement disciplines from various eras, cultures and continents. We will celebrate movement diversity and body intelligence and indulge in the connective and separating aspects of the fascial system and its expressions while getting our grooves on fed by exquisite music.
